Knocklayde Mountain Ballycastle

Welcome to Trench Farm 


About Us

We are a working farm in Ballycastle on the beautiful north coast of Northern Ireland. We currently keep a flock of sheep, pygmy goats, the cutest shetland pony you will ever meet and two alpacas!!

Having been one half of Watertop Open Farm for the past 30+ years we decided that it was time to make use of our home farm space and let others enjoy the peace and quiet  that we derive from it too. We like to think of ourselves as placed perfectly - in the middle of the quiet countryside with lots of space but still extremely close to all the fantastic sites/places that the causeway coast has to offer. We are only a 5 minute drive from Ballycastle town and better yet, 15 minutes one way will take you to the breathtaking Fairhead and 15 minutes the other way will take you to the equally stunning Giant's Causeway!

What more could you want?!


What We Offer

Farm Cottage to rent Ballycastle


The Cottage is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Come and explore the north coast and come home to a cosy cottage nestled in the countryside.

Family campsite Ballycastle


We have launched the perfect place to pitch a tent on the causeway coast. Our campsite provides each pitch with ample space to enjoy their stay but still close enough to your neighbours to create some new friendships- which is what camping is all about!
